Two men were arrested in connection with an antigay attack in Portland, Ore., early Saturday morning, then released. Shawn Siefke (top right) and Christian Sanchez-Villavencio (bottom right) asked a man for directions at about 3 a.m. on Saturday. They allegedly began hurling antigay epithets at him before pushing him to the ground. Andrew Smith (left) came to the man’s aid and then found himself punched and eventually kicked in the head. Siefke and Sanchez-Villavencio left the scene only to inadvertently return when police arrived — they were both arrested.

Seen above, Jim Darling’s Tank installation makes up a small portion of Inside Out, an exhibition featuring new work by Jim and his partner Tina. Together, the artists explore the idea of home and the various places people choose to live. Jim focuses on semi-sculptural work, while Tina excels at delicate water color and ink works. Both peer into the lives of others… but in a way that is neither invasive or off-putting. Their show remains on view through July 23, 2011.

It should have been seen as a sign that a man can shave every day of his life and his beard will keep growing back. Over the past few years, we’ve seen facial hair sprouting up on faces everywhere. Men want to experiment with their facial gardens, but it’s not always just as easy as putting the razor to rest…

From making the decision to wear facial hair, to the best way to take it off, all men can finally be stylish and care for their appearance while staying true to who they are: Men.

The guy’s got swagger in spades…and that attitude comes through on the pages. That makes the book a fun read – even if your aspirations for facial adornment never move beyond the milk-mustache phase.

by Accidental Bear

Rancho Mirage, Cathedral City, Desert Hot Springs rank the highest for gay couples in search of the perfect utopia to spend their golden years. Perhaps it’s because cold weather makes their joints achey but statistics show the gay couple are heading to the desert. -AB

With about 115 same-sex couples for every 1,000 households, Palm Springs ranks ahead of other notably gay-friendly cities like San Francisco and West Hollywood, according to an analysis of census data by the Williams Institute on Sexual Orientation Law, based at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Canada’s Naked & Famous denim house goes head to head with AMS’s own Tenue de Nimes for a special 24 pair run of 13oz green rope-dyed repro denim. They have a vintage army feel to them. “Specific attention has been paid to matching the shade of green perfectly. The mid-green color proved a particular challenge since the dye is very unstable, but the hard work has paid off, giving us a beautiful and truly inspired color.” Well done fellas. Available online

Adam Kimmel Spring/Summer 2012 Runway

by Accidental Bear

Clothes tell stories. They say thing like, “Hi, I’m a junkie whore” or “Hi, I want to look like a just crawled out of bed but I spent 2 hours getting ready.” Adam Kimmels’s Spring/Summer 2012 looks tells me that the wearer might be a surfer boy who was told by his girlfriend that he need to clean up a bit, but holds on to dark colors as to accommodate spills. Kimmel sneaks in a few skirts and has most of his male waifs barefoot. For those who wore shoes, are sporting  slip-on and boot looks from the designer. (gq)

More looks after the jump…

BACHMANN CITES WRONG JOHN WAYNE, PRAISES NOTORIOUS SERIAL KILLER Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has a thing for John Wayne. In an interview yesterday with Newsmax, she said she wants to live in “John Wayne’s America.” And in the Iowa town of Waterloo today, where she announced her presidential candidacy, Bachmann told Fox News, “John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That’s the kind of spirit that I have, too.” But unfortunately for historically challenged Bachmann, as the Washington Times points out, the John Wayne born in Waterloo is John Wayne Gacy, the notorious serial killer who murdered 33 teenage boys and young men, not the iconic Western actor.

Accidental Bear Exchanges Words with the Two Jasperjohns | Video Q&A

by Accidental Bear

Just in time for the hugely anticipated (by me) 3rd webisode “White Pants: Three” by The Two Jasperjohns, I don’t sit down with, but exchange words via the world wide web with Jim Noonan and Vinny Lopez. This starts off what we here at Accidental Bear will be calling Interviews on a Budget Series. We are poor but proud, proud but penniless. Coming across The Two Jasperjohns has given my summer meaning and feeds my void now that I have finally burnt out on Strangers with Candy for the 5th year in a row on loop-repeat; The Two Jasperjohns fill this space well with some added scruff. I am glad to catch these men before they get on a rocket to the top and the start living the good life (cocaine, strippers and beer). They filmed interview questions during their wrap party for finishing White Pants: Three. Champagne, Beards and good company equals good times.

In a world where slapping a label on yourself in hopes to find your place within our community is common, these guys are able to have fun playing with stereotypes and keep things light, leaving pretension at the door. Thanks for playing men!
